*Delayed shipping on new frame dies – estimated ship date is May. 20th.I have four cards to share with you today. I stamped and cut lots of flowers using Rose Patch, Large Florals: Rose and Bountiful Leaves grouped layering stamp sets and arranged them for the first three cards. I tried to vary the floral arrangement and the shape of my cards using the new frame dies. Vanilla Frosted Cupcake, Lemon Drop, Amber Citrine Orange flowers : Amber Citrine, Coraline Hybrid, Coral Cavern Pink flowers : Ballet Slippers, Hollywood Star, Cosmopolitan Pink Hybrid Purple flowers : Soft Orchid, Orchid Crush, Grand Fuchsia (bright purple flowers) : Soft Orchid, Orchid Crush Violet flowers : Soft Amethyst, Iris Blooms, Grape Crush Green Leaves : Soft Garden, Bright Fern, Deep Emerald Teal Leaves : Lofty Mint, Bright Emerald, Hot Tourmaline Gray Leaves : Crystal Pewter, Smoky Quartz, Light Onyx The first card is featuring the Large Florals: Rose and Bountiful Leaves set. Large Florals: Rose set with gray and teal leaves. To create the background I used the new Rectangle A2 Frames Slim Borders Coverplate die. I cut a white cardstock using the die and ink blended every other piece of the cut rectangle frames in Bright Emerald to match with the teal leaves. I adhered the pieces on a white cardbase and added the flowers on it. I adhered the leaves flat and added the roses using foam tape. Large Florals: Rose set. I white heat embossed it on a strip of black cardstock and cut it using a banner die from Quick Labels and Tags. die. I ink blended Orchid Crush on a piece of white cardstock and cut it using the same banner die. I made the black banner a bit smaller and layered it with the soft purple banenr. I added a few Smoked Emerald Sparkling Clear Sequins to finish off the card. Rose Patch stamp set. Rose Patch stamp set and added green leaves to my floral arrangement. After I arranged the flowers and leaves on a A2 sized piece of printer paper I secured the arrangement using Press’n Seal and set it aside. I did watercolor wash on a piece of watercolor paper in yellow and orange. After the panel was dry I cut it using Double Pierced Square Nested die. I mounted it flat on a white cardbase. I foam mounted a circle frame on it which was cut using two Double Pierced Circle Nested dies from some yellow cardstock. I then added the floral arrangement to the card. Easy Expressions set. I gold heat embossed the large calligraphic part in gold and stamped the thin part of the sentiment in Noir. I cut it using the coordinating die and added it to the card using foam tape. I finish off this card with some Lemon Chiffon and Glass Slippers sequins. Rose Patch and Large Florals: Rose and made a splendid arrangement filling in the slimline size. I also used Leafy Bits die. Leafy Bits die here and there. I then stuck them under the Press’n Seal and set it aside to make the background. I cut a piece of watercolor paper in 3 5/8 x 8 5/8 ” and created the background for my roses using ink smooshing technique in light blue, pink and violet. After the panel was dry I foam mounted it on a white slimline cardbase. I then adhered the rose arrangement on it. I adhered the leaves flat on the background and added the roses using foam tape. Easy Expressions : Thanks set. I stamped the calligraphic part of the whole stamp in three colors; Soft Garnet, Grape Crush and Cobalt Breeze, so that two sentiments from the set have ombre color. I stamped the thin part in Noir. I fussy cut the sentiment I need from the panel. There is a coordinating die which cuts the whole sentiment strips in one single pass! I added the sentiment with pink-violet ombre word to the card and scattered some Glass Slippers Round Confetti sequins. Double Pierced Circle Coverplate die. It cuts 7 circle frames around a small circle. So I thought it is perfect for a rainbow :). I ink blended the circle pieces in rainbow colors using Lipstick Red, Coraline Hybrid, Lemon Drop, Soft Garden, Cobalt Breeze, True Navy and Iris Blooms and foam mounted the rainbow on a white cardbase.
